    If you can't find one, I use locking pliers to hold the metal while I use my welding torch to heat the locking pliers. Very effective and often times much better to control heat.

    Yes, I did. I wanted the older model, but Hilco does sell them new.

    Hi All, I am looking for some used Hot Fingers, or any heated hinge presses. I have a small workshop for making bespoke frames in acetate. (Soon to be adding metal into the mix as well)

    Thanks
